Third Baseman Renato Nunez pretty much took care of things single-handedly for Stockton on Monday night. The 20-year-old hit a 2-run homer to put the Ports on the board in the top of the 1st and then followed that up by slugging a grand slam in the 7th. Outfielder Aaron Shipman doubled, while designated hitter Matt Olson walked 3 times and scored twice, and outfielder Jaycob Brugman went 1 for 4 and scored a run in his Stockton debut. Starter Yeiper Castillo turned in his first solid outing for the Ports, tossing 5 2/3 scoreless innings to earn the win. Brugman joined the Stockton outfield from Beloit after Billy McKinney was traded and Herschel “Boog” Powell was suspended.

RHP Tim Atherton returned to the Ports after making an emergency start for Sacramento this weekend, and RHP Rodolfo Fernandez was assigned to Stockton after being acquired from the Brewers on Monday.
